Construction Worker Resume Sample

This Construction Worker resume sample follows a 'functional' format suitable for those with gaps in their work history. However, you may want to opt for the more favourable 'chronological' format depending on your situation. See our format's page for a deeper explanation.

Note that this Construction Worker resume sample, and all these samples are very basic and in no way do they represent what your own resume could be and should be. With each sample page I add a quick “how to” at the end that teaches you how to adjust these samples to make them your own.

I've also added a plain text version.
